Good luck and have fun!

So now to my card using the gorgeous new stamp Moon Baby isn't she sweet but he be could sweet too if he had a blue dummy or blue babygrow.
I use a sakura clear glitter pen to make the stars look OPAL but sparkly. 
The moon is covered in glamour dust which are an OPAL colour inside the bottle but take on the yellow moon when used. (Have I given enough clues to the Gem yet).
The papers are some scraps left, so not sure what they are but there's none left, so feeling good for using them all up.
The punched circle is using a strange looking punch that has a magnet to hold the punching device on the paper and as you can tell I've no idea whats it called.
Now don't forget to join in the blog hop and how about joining in with the challenge too.
